Celebration and Letdown

What a week. First we were absolutely thrilled to see the San Francisco Giants win the World Series over the Texas Rangers. And the parade on Wednesday! That feeling of elation everywhere.

The San Jose Mercury News called it “a party for the ages.” We couldn’t agree more.

Did the parade take the edge off Election Day results this week? Perhaps.

President Obama’s picture on the front page of yesterday’s New York Times was rather shocking, his “shellacking” notwithstanding.

We recommend an article by Timothy Egan, also published in the Times’ Web site, “How Obama Saved Capitalism and Lost the Midterms.” 

Snip: “For no matter your view of President Obama, he effectively saved capitalism. And for that, he paid a terrible political price.”

On a completely other note, we received an e-mail from a reader who asked about Suzy Suburbanite. We’ve linked to Suzy’s main site for a long time and didn’t realize she hadn’t been too active. We found “Suzy’s Travel Blog” but there hasn’t been a posting for years. Hmm.

Anybody know where Suzy has gone? Is she okay? Let us know, and we’ll update you next time.

    Cons are mad about Obama’s trip because there are no spoils involved with diplomacy.
